CHALLENGE #3: DESIGNING A CEILING
PATTERN AROUND EXISTING LIGHTING

Above the island, there is a ceiling tray that needed
some additional texture and warmth to balance
the otherwise all-white kitchen. Hamilton wanted
to install wood beams to do this, but she had to
create a pattern that both fit in the tray and did
not block the existing can lighting.
"Leaving the lights in place meant that we had
to work to adjust the shape of the diamond - the
angles and the length - to make sure we made the
whole shape within the recess of the ceiling tray
without blocking the lights," said the designer.
After adjusting the design in AutoCAD, the
team placed a template in the ceiling tray to make
sure the measurements were accurate before installing the heavy beams. This tactic was then
repeated for a neighboring tray, which was the
same width but not the same length of the tray
above the island.
CHALLENGE #4: ENSURING THE MARBLE
COUNTERTOPS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME

Marble is not typically recommended for highuse areas, but it was top of the client's list of requests for the countertops. Since there were some
concerns that maintenance of the marble would
be time consuming, Hamilton found a product
called Tuffskin from a local marble supplier to
protect the stone.
"The product is a thin, plastic coating that is
similar to window-tinting film but clear," said the
designer."It was applied over the marble and protects it from etching, staining and scratching for up
to five years, at which time it should be replaced."
Hamilton emphasized that the product's functionality is dependent on a good installation, but
it makes marble countertops - even in the kitchen
- easily usable for years to come.


ABOVE It was important to the

designer that the island sink
did not disrupt the pattern
of the marble countertop, so
she had the fabricators make
a custom marble one that
went with the pattern of the
surrounding stone.

BELOW RIGHT "We had to be
careful to avoid any existing
air conditioning vents, but
other than that it was a relatively simple process," said
Hamilton, in reference to the
second row of upper cabinets
she installed.
